The Husky Mentor Network is a valuable tool for connecting with alumni who share a commonality or who work in your industry of interest and is one I encourage you to use regularly for that purpose. However, it is also home to a library of cultivated career-related videos and webinars, with some specific to business, finance, sales, and marketing. Here’s a sample of what you’ll find in the Resources section within the Husky Mentor Network.
Working at Google
Watch the panel and learn what it takes to get noticed. From the site: “In today’s day and age, the word Google is synonymous with search and seen by many as the face of bleeding-edge technology. Gayle Laakmann McDowell is the author of Cracking the Coding Interview and The Google Resume with experience reviewing thousands of applications on the Google hiring committee. In this webinar, Gayle reveals what Google is looking for when screening applications.”
According to the description, “The finance panel of experts introduces you to some (legal) inside information, to give you the edge in this competitive market. Want to work in finance but don’t know which career path is best for you? Listen to an all-star lineup of financial professionals from i-banking, investment management, private equity, and more as they discuss their experience in the industry and answer audience questions.”
Sales & Digital Marketing
As stated on the website, “Information and Technology are now at the forefront of the economy with companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Google right in the spotlight as global innovators. While the engineers strive to create new products, the sales and marketing team must work to provide the company with the resources to grow. Topics covered include: – Overview of industry structure – How to prepare for Sales/Marketing interviews – Role vs. Fit Interviews – What companies are looking for.”
Each video is about 40 minutes long and is full of content you can apply to major and career exploration, as well as the internship and job search. If you want to connect with a panelist, and they are not in our network, look them on LinkedIn and tell them you saw them on the video. It would be an excellent way to show you used the Mentor Network and found the information valuable. Not sure of LinkedIn etiquette? Set up a career coaching appointment to find out.
